I'll let it be known that those beer can collecting books are very interesting. How to Teach Physics to Your Dog has checked out 8 times in 6 months.

At one time, I actually owned some of these.

I own a couple of these books myself. And I almost bought the Liberace fashion book when I was at his museum in Las Vegas earlier this summer. I kind of regret that I didn't.

You call those "weird books"?

Thay can't compare to my child's picture book of Gounod's FAUST or the movie tie-in edition of OEDIPUS REX. And how 'bout theClassics Illustrated of CRIME & PUNISHMENT ?
